Somehow I ended up with six or seven skeins of black yarn, not sure how or why. In an effort to clear out my yarn stash a little I started a granny stripe blanket, and finished it less than 10 days later. Once I started I couldn’t stop, and it was fun to finish each black stripe so I could pick the next colour. Each of the 23 colours are from my stash, mostly Stylecraft Special 8ply and Panda Magnum Soft 8ply. It’s a soft, mid-weight blanket and I quite like it!
